She certainly seems to have left indellible (that has to be wrong) memories on all who studied under her.

Wow beatings eh? We got off easy...

Uncounted drills and DTs, twice rusticated one in my LE and once in my UF...then being house captain having to get up on Sun mornings and cycle to the foggy mile and watch over the drills. The last was the worst punishment I guess, but probably appealed to my ego/and or sense of duty and so I didn't notice.

The worst thing ever for me was army cadets, having to do press ups at the whim of a chunky senior boy and run with my gun in army camp. I cried though at the start of the next term and got (secretly) let off for the second year and we did a grueling community service instead, Michelle Pufelete, Anna Thring I think, and I.

The Queen's English? It's a living language, JR! (as you have often demonstrated... :wink: )

Anyway, the urbandictionary.com confirms beyond any reasonable doubt that this is just a variation of a very old expression.
fo' shizzle my nizzle

Originated in medieval England in the 17th century, this phrase has changed in meaning completely, from the original shorthand denotation of "Alas! An adversary has come upon us! To the catapults!" to the modern definition of "Please grease up my (word withheld by Ajarn Philip on the grounds of forum standards. 'Penis' is not a word we want to see bandied around here, thank you very much)."
Old: Bartholomew, the dastardly barbarians are attacking! Foe Shizle mine nizle!

New: Bitch step up! Fo shizzle my nizzle!
I did have to correct several spelling errors in the on line entry, but that should not detract from the authenticity of this definition.

You need serious, expensive and sustained professional help.
You should give Alan P5age a ping, I'm betting he could hook you up!! :lol:

Actually I've been watching a BBC series about the Medieval mind (with Jimmy Hendrix played out on lutes and lyres for the soundtrack) and as it turns out they were more bawdy than this post, more creative in their links between two points of reason, and far more far-out than us. Open your mind, read your history, relax!

Regarding several recent posts, medieval equals 1600's? Not according to some historians.

Ajarn's source seems to be 300 or 500 years out but he does say that he had to correct the source on other quoted matters

I wasn't insulting anyone! :tonqe:
I don't have a TV we gave it up a year and half ago and haven't seen one TV advert since. A great way to learn history, now we are free from school's tortuous, blinkered sole study of Henry the VIII (which they are still teaching as the main subject for 13 year olds as history), is by talking to historians I've found, as last week a half hour interview with the author of 'The Pursuit of Pleasure, Drugs and Stimulants in Iranian History, 1500-1900' proved very interesting, I got to demystify all the things I'd burning questions about without reading/watching a thing, good too as my eyes are failing I do so much online editing.

"I'm 'Enery the 8th I am, 'Enery the 8th I am I am,
I got married to the widder next door, she'd been married 7 times before,
And ev'ry one was an 'Enery, she never 'ad a Willy or a Sam,
I'm 'er 8th old man called 'Enery, 'Enery the 8th I aaaaaaaaaaaam!"


Blimey, that's better. Mrs Ajarn has just raised a quizzical eyebrow, but nothing new there...
